Copenhagen – GL-TURBO International and HOFOR have signed a contract regarding delivery of a GL5 Single Stage Centrifugal Turbo Blower to HOFOR’s Amagerværket Power Station. The GL5 blower will serve as an FGD (flue-gas desulfurization) oxidation blower. It will replace the existing but outdated blower at the power plant, which HOFOR has been longing to upgrade to improve efficiency and reliability. This order represents a significant step forward by GL-TURBO in Europe and an important reference within power-station related FGD blower applications.
